What you'll learn in this self improvement class:

Equanimity is about living life, no matter what arises, with an open and responsive heart. It is a steadiness of mind and a calm understanding that enables you to be with the constantly changing and shifting landscape of the world. It coalesces you with meaningful connections and caring. Equanimity does not mean indifference or apathy, rather it is a spaciousness of mind that empowers lovingkindness and compassion. It is a system of action, no matter what is happening. This is an especially useful practice for difficult times during conflict, frustration, and uncertainty.

Join Sharon Salzberg, one of world's most influential meditation teachers, authors, and leading experts in meditation for a road map to guide you in challenging times with clarity, calm, heartfulness, equanimity, and resiliency to effect real change in yourself.

Real change guides you to embody the fundamental principles of mindfulness and lovingkindness meditation to create a better world for yourself and others. Couple equanimity with resiliency to engender a more harmonious and graceful life. For many, overwhelm and stress have become overbearing. The balance of the heart and mind is key to sustaining yourself, especially in the face of daily challenges.

Meditation is not a replacement for taking action, but rather a way to practice generosity with yourself and summon the courage to break through boundaries, reconnect to a movement that is bigger than yourself, and have the energy to stay active to foster transformation in both yourself and society.

Through the practice of meditation, develop three essential skills that cultivate balance with concentration, mindfulness, and compassion. Take an in-depth look and practice these skills to move you towards deeper caring resilient with a buoyancy that expands your life. There will be time to do practices of lovingkindness, guided meditations, and questions and answers. Suitable for both beginning and more experienced meditators.
